Most of us are familiar with Warren Buffett and his brand of value investing methodology that has made him the most successful investor in the world.
The Only Problem With Value Investing
The value investing methodology is one of the most sound and proven investment strategies that are around. Unfortunately, I’ve also couldn’t help but notice that most of the people who’ve attained majority of their wealth via value investing tends to be rather… aged.
That shouldn’t surprise anyone given that value investing is a strategy that relies on the power of compounding returns – something which obviously requires time.
While I deeply admire Warren Buffett and want to emulate him as an investor, I also hope that I can get to enjoy my money at a slightly younger age. Surely that’s not too much to ask!
Introducing “Karen the Supertrader”
Karen had a meteoric rise to fame in the trading world. She famously went from trading $100,000 of her own money to managing 190 million dollars worth of assets! Interviews had then started pouring in, curious about her background, trading strategies and overall attitude in managing money.
Before Karen became a full time options trader, she was a CFO for a small company. Then in 2002, she was considering opening a bagel shop with her friend when she was invited to attend an options trading seminar. After she went for the seminar, things were never going to be the same again.
In 2007, she decided to take things up a notch by resigning from her company and went into trading options full time. By the end of her first year, she already made $50,000 in profits using options strategies such as Iron Condors and Credit Spreads.
With results such as these, money begins to pour in quickly as investors were anxious to have their money managed by her.
